Infinite’s leader Kim Sung Kyu has returned with an album, after a long period of hiatus. This is 3 years since 10 Stories, an LP album he released before enlisting to the army.
On December 14th, an online showcase was held to celebrate his 3rd EP album INSIDE ME, in which he said that he wishes the album to be a gift which could bring comfort to fans. He further revealed the source of his motivation to be fans who waited for the Singer Kim Sung Kyu.
Although Sung Kyu’s all time producer NELL’s Kim Jongwan did not participate this time, the artist was able to collaborate with songwriters such as Sunwoojunga, BLSSD and BXN. He clarified, “working with Jongwan was very valuable,” but in midst of the progress he decided to fill the album with new songs.
Whilst his previous music had strong elements of rock, this album consists of more R&B sounds. The title track “I’m cold” best demonstrates such change in his music.
Sung Kyu wishes to be known as someone who “lives up to his name” through this album. He explained that he’d like the album to add a little fun to the boring days of social distancing in which the global pandemic had brought upon.
